London based no-wave noise-rock supergroup USA Nails are back teeth bared with their brand new single ‘Revolution Worker’ and details on their brand new record Character Stop.
Released October 23rd via Hex Records (USA) and Bigout Records (Europe), Character Stop is set to be the group’s fifth record and the follow up to last year’s Life Cinema. Recorded and tracked over four days with producer Wayne Adams (JOHN, Vodun, Big Lad), the album is set to see the band explore themes of identity, online personas, mental health, the joy and pain of part time work and much more.
Composed of current and previous members of Oceansize, Future Of The Left, Death Pedals, Blacklisters, Silent Front, Kong and Dead Arms, USA Nails have swiftly become a crucial staple of the national noise rock scene due to their sardonic commentary on modern life and scalping dissonance. Showcasing this is the group’s brand spanking new single ‘Revolution Worker’.
A feedback driven meditation on pondering how much time one has left both pursuing endeavours and on this mortal coil, ‘Revolution Worker’ is the first taste of a record that is set to see USA Nails ponder more sombre themes.
"‘Revolution Worker’ is about not knowing how long you have left at being in a band and life in general.” States frontman Steven Hodson. “My Dad died quite young and now I’m a father it’s something I think about quite a lot. It’s also about balancing time between family, work and band. All that grim stuff is wrapped up in a hell of a catchy riff, feedback and woodblocks.”
Never the ones to sit idle, USA Nails will also be releasing a split EP with Petbrick (Ex-Sepultura) within the next few months, with details set to come soon. If all goes to plan, they’ll also be embarking on a short run of UK shows before the year is up before touring more extensively in the coming year.
